Lightweight scaffolding is made of lightweight steel material. The scaffolding includes end frames with vertical and horizontal frame members. The horizontal frame members are evenly spaced to provide rungs for workers to climb. The vertical frame members are of generally cylindrical shape having flat surfaces. One portion provides a full surface to which ends of the horizontal frame members is welded. The other provides a stable surface to which an adjacent ends frame can be fastened. Simplified connecting pins connect vertically stacked end frames. The scaffolding also includes a base to provide added stability, to which base vertical frame members are affixed.
